Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, the greatest festival on earth is about to begin! Step right up folks! Don’t be shy! Be prepared to witness the whimsical, the outlandish, the macabre, and the beautiful!
Be amazed! Be awed! Be scared! Sideshows around every corner….have you ever laid eyes on a human pin cushion? Have you ever witnessed a dance through hoops of fire? How about a snake charmer? Wandering freaks and street performers will leave you in awe. We’ll have fire eaters, fire spinners, contortionists, the whole nine yards! But, please, heed my warning and beware of the clowns!
October 13th – 14th, 2023 is the annual Wickedly Whiting, the Region’s original and only all Halloween, oddities and horror festival! The fun starts from 11a.m. and lasts until 11p.m.
Stroll along the midway and shop the peddlers selling their tonics, treasures and unusual merchandise. Just watch your back. You’ll never know who or what will be behind you… Visit the beer garden with live entertainment . One of a kind local craft beers and meads will be on tap!
The beer garden is family friendly until 5p.m. Comfort foods of all kinds will be available from our many traveling vendors. Join us October 8th, from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. in Whiting, Indiana for the second annual Wickedly Whiting Festival! Located 17 minutes south of the Chicago Loop, this Halloween festival is the first of its kind in the region. Enter the festival if you dare through a block long graveyard scene…but be careful as you do, Zombies are everywhere! Once you get through, hopefully alive, you will be relieved to discover that you are inside the festival, a festival of food, fun, and shopping! (There’s a chicken entrance for those who don’t dare…)
There will be many types of comfort foods await, perfect for a fall day.
Scare addicts can shop the Market of the Living Dead for all types of Halloween, sci-fi & horror items. Artists display their dark talents, and people create monsters right before your eyes!
There’s a stage for the young…and the young at heart…with magicians, reptiles, and costume contests. Take part in the Howling contest. As dusk settles, take a seat for Halloween themed movies.
Grab a drink in the haunted beer garden and enjoy live local music, dancing, friends, and fun! Don’t miss the adult costume contest!
